The Pro-Israel candidate –
“I will aways support Israel’s security” – “I will bring with me an unshakable commitment for Israel’s security” “Let me be clear. Israel’s security is sacrosanct, non-negotiable” “with secure recognized defensible borders, and Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided”
Barack Obama ran for president as a pro-Israel candidate — but his record tells a different story.
“Barak Obama has lectured Israel more than her enemies. He has pressured Israel to apologise to their attackers. He singles out Israel for condemnation over and over again, but says in speeches that Israel has no better friend. He blames Israel for the lack of peace talks, but not the Palestinians who have refused to come to the table for years. He says his commitment to Israel’s security is unshakable. But he pressures Israel not to take military action against Iran.
The words of Barak Obama the campaigner where reassuring to friends of Israel. The ACTIONS of Barak Obama the president have been alarming and damaging to a relationship of trust between our two democracies. Barak Obama promised to be a unwaivering friend and defender of Israel. It is deeply unfortunate and dangerous that he has failed to keep this promise.”
“I urged Jews (nervous laugh) all over the country to vote for him saying that he would be just as good as John McCain on the security of Israel. I don’t think it’s true anymore” – Ed Koch (former mayor of NYC)
I can’t stand Obama, he’s a liar. And we’ve had to deal with him EVERYday!
